Yep, It's PD! Although I'm sorta confused why something from 1984 could be PD. But I checked, and yep, It's PD!

Now can somebody answer a question for me. If something was published in 1984, but was never submitted for copyright, What is it's legal status?
Is it safe to upload? Because I discovered that a certain popular 80's TV series was never submitted for copyright. Trust me, I was shocked! In fact, It's so popular that you'll be shocked that it was never submitted.

I can answer that for you.
As far as I know changed the rules of copyright on march 1989 (remember this because it was my birthmonth) before this date all the films (in the U.S.A.) had to show a copyright-notice to the goverment, so that the they could be registerred in the system. films that didn't give a notice to the goverment fell in the PD after the changing of the system. This was something I heard, I don't know accuracy of it because from the same source I heard that the only way that an American film after this date could fall in the public domain was through donation. and that would make Laser Mission (1990) the strange case.

I couldn't find any copyright.
The freind who told me it was PD couldn't.
And Robin-1990 apparently also not.
So that kind of confirms it.

Hi! Did you know that not a single episode of "The Tonight Show" from the 80's was submitted for copyright? I wonder if they are safe to upload.
